These are all very nice projects, though I'm not too pleased with the fact of that they aren't using steel supports in any of these projects. Concrete supported buildings have lower stress levels and thus have on average lower life spans and greater maintenance costs in the long run, especially in areas with sharply adjusting weather patterns such as is the case in Abuja. Also when Nigerian companies and international companies get to the point in were they come to the conclusion that they are ready to build towering skyscrapers in Naija.. the Nigerian workers will be totally inexperienced to handle such a job, because all they've been doing up to that point is concrete supported buildings and such towering structures as 60, 80, 100 feet and more buildings demand the use of steel supports.
